Knitting actually goes back to Europe during the 19th century. It first appeared in a Dutch magazine around the 1800s. It had a color plate showing five different style purses. They were all crocheted with silk and thread. Crochet materials didn’t become very popular in Europe until it reached Ireland. During this time there was famine in Ireland and the crochet was a form of famine relief. The crochet changed with the end of the Victorian Era of the 1890s. In the new Edwardian era between 1910 and 1920 crocheted laces became very popular and more elaborate. This has created more complicated stitching and Victorian colors have disappeared. During the late 1960s and early 1970s the “new” generation picked up on crochet and popularized granny squares. During this time popularity in yard and hand crafts declined sharply.
